I would suggest somewhere it can be easily found and maintained such as the
http://make.wordpress.org/themes/ site under resources ... post the
information to the mailing list as a new topic and someone with "Editor"
status can get it transferred to the "Make" site for the interim. We can
work out a better solution if need be but I would hope BP will fix itself
and this information will be out-of-date soon enough (*grin*)
